Black metal is fantastic so long as there is no "screaming". Half the lyrics in those songs are repeated every verse with only a few words changed and they are usually all about the same thing. Technical sure, talented, easily. Hearing some man scream because he's been a little angst kid for most of his life? Hahah.... right.

I also do not agree with a lot of the content and what these bands stand for. It's like they have something to prove to everyone else of this world. The way I see it is these people are the fucked up individuals who haven't murdered/raped anyone yet. Well, I'm sure some have, maybe this helps them not do it as much. Snarling and growling does not equal music. It's noise much like the really shitty "music" some punk bands can produce.

Quite why are you seem so vehemently againt anyone even displaying a slight admiration for the genre, i'll never know. We get it, you don't like it. No need to labour the point, come across as an offensive asshole and act like a child all within the space of a single topic.

Wow, there is so much wrong with this post I don't even know where to begin. It's like you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about so you're criticizing some kind of strange stereotype or something. Oh wait that's exactly what you're doing my bad.

You are a self righteous asshole. End of discussion.

I don't knock you for liking whatever you like, yet you attack me personally. Fuck you man. Fuck you.

Every post of yours in this thread has been condescending to the point of stupid. I gave an opinion of what I THINK the music is about. Yet you attack me for an opinion.

Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one.

If I don't defend this music, I'm a 15 year old laughable trendhopper who likes noise and is trying to be scary, if I do, I'm a self righteous asshole. I just can't win here can I?

The basis on which folks in here are dismissing an entire genre are for the most part centered around total misconceptions or are attacking some kind of exaggerated stereotype that isn't even representative of the genre as a whole. You for example weren't even attacking black metal, you were attacking a generic extreme metal stereotype. Yes my posts in here filled with condescending sarcasm, but the "criticisms" in this thread about the genre and the people who might enjoy it are just as condescending, if not moreso.
